Fifty-Five Followers Fun Giveaway!

MRL Fifty-Five Followers Fun Giveaway

Okay here it is!  The Making Rebecca Lynne Followers appreciation giveaway!  Why?  Because I can and more importantly because I want to show you all how much I appreciate you!

So what is up for the giveaway...?  This Echino Madrigal Peach Pouch created by moi & some destash!

DSC_0091

I was debating whether to make a pouch this size for myself and decided to see what I could fit inside and show you all.  It fits perfectly in the hand, so cute!  Plus, I was able to fit and close the pouch with my phone, earrings (big to some), lipstick, hair-clip, and keys with my massive keychain inside.  Pretty good don't you think?

Destash includes some Amy Butler, Heather Ross, Tina Givens (great for fussy cutting), Kokka Hippos, bits (varying sizes) and some random fat quarters that I have no idea what the names are.  But one of them is dots!

What to do...

Please leave a comment PER ENTRY because I will be using a Random Number Generator to Pick the winner!

1. BONUS entry to my current 55 Followers.  Because there would be no Fun without you...if you are one of the first 55 then please leave a comment stating Bonus Entry.  [This idea came from Helen so do pop onto her site and leave her some thanks!] 

2. Follow MRL and leave a comment, OR if you already do then leave a comment to remind me

3. Become a Fan and Like MRL's Facebook Page and leave a comment to let me know

4. Blog about the Fifty-five Followers Fun Giveaway and leave me a comment with a link

5.  Tell me how you feel about Sampler QALs.  Is it something you like to do or do you prefer to QAL a different kind of quilt altogether.  Or do you not like QALs at all?  Spill the dirt...

Mr. Random Number Generator will help me pick a winner at Midnight Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday October 12th, 2011! 

Whew hew!  Good Luck!

That is SO cute, especially with the touch of lace. Those metal frames intimidate me.

Kelli said...

LOVE the de-stash fabrics!! BONUS entry. :)

Kelli said...

I have never done a QAL so not sure how I feel about them.. but a sampler one would probably be right up my alley.

Jules said...

cute pouch, i want to make one!

Jules said...

Kelli said...

Of course I follow you around.

Issabella The Cat said...

Hmmm sampler quilt alongs I normally book mark the ones I like to go back to at a later date (Once my ever growing WIP list shrinks) then find that everyone is finished quilting along and do it on my own using the posts flickr groups and comments kindly left by others as inspiration, cheeky yes but it works for me :D

Kelli said...

Blogged!!! Check my latest post. :)

Kelli said...

Gotta take A. to school, but will like your FB page when I return--have a great day! :) Happy Giveaway!!

Sana Saroti said...

Well, here is my Bonus entry first ;-) cause I've been amongst the first 55! Congratulations btw! My numbers are kind of stagnating right now.

Sana Saroti said...

And yeah, I'm a follower! I really liked your post about the 3rd SBM! I can totally understand you. I had the idea of having a givaway at 50 followers too, so if you wanna support that maybe you wanna become a follower of mine ;-)

Sana Saroti said...

QAL ... hmm? Well, I'm joined the DSQAL and that's all the experiance I got. I was thinking about the Summer Sampler QAL. Really liked it but well, summer is over ;-) I wouldnt mind seeing more Sampler QALs but dont know if I would join. My number one priority right now is finishing my degree.

livinginred said...

Hi Rebecca, I think you know I subscribed to your blog weeks ago, but I did so on Google Reader, so I didn't show up to you as a follower. I am a follower now! I love your blog.

Katie said...

I haven't participated in any of the sampler QALs, but did think about it. I do like the other ones I've done though and would do a sampler. I think it's fun to see everyone's interpretation of a design.

Melinda said...

Ooh! Pick me, picke me! Bonus entry!

Melinda said...

I like you. Oh, and I like you on FB too!

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

I like any QALs especially ones I learn from - I think that's why I'd lean towards sampler - also because it's easier to use what you have for some if not all of it. I so hope this means you're going to do one?!! ;)

Melody said...

Cute purse. GFC Follower but I'm #57.

Jessica said...

I like QALs in general. I think they are a fun way to try something new, and bond with other quilters from all over the world. I haven't done too many yet, so I'm still getting a feel for them.

Heather A said...

I'm a new follower and pretty new, too, at this whole quilting thing.

Heather A said...

I haven't done q QAL yet. But when I do, I'll be looking for simple and effective. I'm not as interested in sampler QALs, though I love watching everyone else's progress.

I just did my first QAL so I`m a bit of a novice but I totally loved it and could get addicted. I really liked the look of the Summer Sampler quiltalong, which made traditional blocks look fun and modern...so all in all I think I like them!

no quilting blog, so, a comment on quiltalongs - doing my first one this fall - anxious for the next step, as the QAL hasn't really started yet. I'm a beginner.

I don't like sampler quilts much, with some exceptions, such as glorious appliqué. I am often impressed by them but I wouldn't one on my bed.

Sarah said...

Your pouch is gorgeous! I'm a new follower :-)

Sarah said...

Well, no surprise I love quiltalongs - I probably prefer a regular quilt to a sampler style but it does depend on the pattern and look!

I'm not a fan of the sampler quilt. Something about them all being different patterns upsets my poor little OCD brain.

i like QALs, but have never done a sampler one- if i did, i would try that summer sampler that made the rounds from swim bike quilt. i loved those blocks.

Elena said...

Love this pouch, is perfect in size and fabric :D

Erin @ Billy Button Design said...

I only use little purses. I can't handle big purses with all these places for your cards...I like a bit of mess, stuffing receipts back in it and finding a €20 note stuck between two credit cards. It is very pretty and mmm it would be right at home in my bag.

Erin @ Billy Button Design said...

Oh and a bonus entry...which I love, what a great idea!

I am a new quilter, but love sampler quilts. I would like a sampler quilt along. It would be a good way for me to increase my skills.

Mom C said...

What a cute little purse! I have a old cosmetic bag that I have used as my carry around sewing kit for more years than I can remember. The plastic is long gone and I was just thinking that I really need to get a new one. It's starting to let lots of light in from all the pins and needles I stick in it. It looks about the size of yours. Just thinking!?!

Mom C said...

I'll follow you, I love to read what everyone is doing. Thanks.

I would love to do a QAL. I have signed up for one 2 months ago and when the first day it started something came up, had to do work for hubby at the office or mom called she needed something done right then. so I have not had good luck with it. But I would love too!!!

I like quilt alongs as long as I know what the end result will look like. Fabric is too expensive for me to invest in to do a project I may not love in the end. Not to mention the time involved...

I am participating in Leila's Sewn Skill builder, which I am loving. The only problem is, that I want to do more- I could join other QALs too, butI am scared of over committing- and then not keeping up. I am also enjoying ( and already not keeping up with) Cindy's (fluffy sheep)FMQ along.

I'm subscribing to get your posts in my inbox! Just found your blog, and really like it! Lovely purse - "moi" should be proud; she did a great job! LOL Seriously, it is awfully nice, I've never done one with the metal clasp before. You did a wonderful job, and the lace is just the right touch.

Snoodles said...

I am the Queen of Overcommitment...I simply have to stop jumping on QALs and other projects, and actually finish one!! I do love 'em tho.

Marcia W. said...

Sampler QALs are fun especially when there are progressive prizes and not as much a crunch for time. I'm doing uberfest right now, delayed by flu bug though, means printing off pdf directions as work through the blocks.
